Whitney Molitor, LMFT #84603
While suffering is an undeniable part of the human experience, no one is meant to walk the path of healing alone. It is my life’s greatest honor to help clients find clarity, renewed optimism, and a sense of inner peace during our work together. Even though the process of therapy certainly can be challenging at times, I want each of my clients to know I am walking alongside them and encouraging their desired change.
Hello there! I’m Whitney Molitor, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I was drawn to the field of therapy after my own eye-opening and powerful experience as a teen in the client seat many years ago. Earning my Undergraduate degree in Psychology from the frigid temperatures of Minnesota’s University of St. Thomas, I packed up my bags to head West and obtained my Masters in Marital & Family Therapy from the University of San Diego.
For the last twelve years, I have been fortunate to practice in a wide range of clinical settings including Hospice & Palliative Care, inpatient, partial, and outpatient psychiatric units at hospitals, an Eating Disorder Treatment Center, and spent the last six years serving as South Bay’s Eating Disorder Specialist at Kaiser Permanente. I am a Certified EMDR Provider, have extensive experience in treating eating disorders, body image concerns, women’s issues, depression, anxiety, grief and loss, perinatal mental health, as well as chronic mental health diagnoses such as Schizophrenia and Bipolar Disorder. I have worked with many different age groups across the lifespan, LGBTQIA clients, and after working near the border for many years, I wholeheartedly understand it is my duty as a provider to work from a multi-cultural approach. Additionally, I am a Certified Yoga Instructor and taught yoga for over ten years, always integrating a holistic and somatic perspective in my work. I completed a year-long extensive training in Bioenergetics, which focuses on utilizing the mind-body connection in healing relational trauma. In addition, I am privileged to have had training in Gottman Couples Therapy, which is the only evidence-based couples therapy currently available.
More important than any credentials behind my name, however, is the warmth and humanness I bring with me into the therapy room. Finding the “right fit” with a therapist is the foundation and safe container to which transformation can begin. I consider my greatest strength as a therapist is my ability to see a client’s potential and inherent worth, despite what dysfunctional patterns or behaviors may be getting in the way. I applaud your courage in taking the first step in creating a more meaningful and fulfilling life!
